New in store and the one that got away

Another fabulous weekend has almost come to an end, we still have sunday evening to mooch about in our PJs and watch a movie while eating comfort food, but tomorrow heralds the start of another working week.

This weekend, like most recent ones has been action packed. We had a fabulous outing to see Dralion by Cirque Du Soliel at Docklands followed by dinner at a Cambodian Restaurant called Bopha Devi. My parents came for the weekend to join us at the circus and our little man who is now 20 months was an absolute angel!

While the little fella was giving the grandparents some exercise I made a new piece for the store, the eclipse earrings, named by my hubby. These have been made from sterling silver earwires and recycled copper. I love the simple lines of them, what do you think?

Also this weekend while showing my mum all the bits and pieces I have on the go she laid claim to a ring in progress. I set about getting in finished so that she could take it home today. The ring is filed into a wedge shape thick at one side and thin at the other, then the oval stone set off centre. Lucky for Mum being in the right place at the right time meant I could make it exactly to size.

So, you wont be seeing this ring any time soon in my etsy store, although I may make it a sister in the future.


  1. I'm in love with the ring ... what type of stone is it?

  2. It is a zirconia, hard to get that intensity of colour without paying an absolute fortune otherwise.

  3. Wow I love that raspberry stone.

  4. those earrings are tres cool! I love copper, it has such an organic feel, even in it's polished state. Love the colour of that ring too!
